Is it possible to determine the height of structures from Google Streetview pictures?

No, unless you have a precise reference that allows you to do the rule of three. But for that you need distant photos without perspective and the result will only be an estimate.
Using different resources, I have been able to estimate heights in this way with great precision, but the only way to check it is with Google Earth 3D or with official technical information.

If the place you're looking at is relatively flat and there are other buildings with known heights nearby, you can also compare shadow lengths for a rough estimate.

I calculated height of structures in GoogleEarth comparing length of their shadows or themselves if view is much inclined with known structures
