"Here is a photograph of a MacKenzie & Moncur wall bracket in Maritime Street, Leith.  The photo was taken in February 2010

Going by the scans from the MacKenzie & Moncur catalogue,  it appears to be a variant of the No.116 wall bracket.

There is also another wall bracket like this on the steps leading down from Slateford Road to Stewart Terrace.."

The wall bracket that Steven refers to is the one illustrated in the top-right corner of this page:
