Well, if you stand up, and look down, you get an idea of your body shape. You look up, you don't see much of yourself. Looking around, you get a reasonable understanding of the dimensions of your body.
You don't need a mirror to know your eyes are not in your feet.
I guess it's the same method. We observe from our point of view, what we determine to be our galaxy.
We'll never see an photo of our galaxy from an external point of view. Ever.
