[Sir William Young Darling (8 May 1885 - 4 February 1962) was the Tory MP in the British House of Commons for the Edinburgh South Constituency from 1945 to 1957. Sir William Y. Darling, the war-time Lord Provost (1941-1944) of Edinburgh, presented the first bench in memory of his uncle, Dr. Alexander Darling, as part of the Presentation Seat Programme set up by the Corporation of the City of Edinburgh after WW2. It was placed on the South side of Princes Street opposite his shop at 124 Princes Street. The example set by Sir William Darling was to encourage fellow shopkeepers and businesses to donate seats opposite their premises and a campaign was started Seats for Citizens to improve seating on Princes Street.].
