Many Of These Are Abandoned,

but what are/were they?

 the pictures were taken from Estonia to Armenia,

 by photographer, Christopher Herwig,

  as he travelled through one of the most sparsely populated regions on Earth,

give up on what they are yet? they are all Soviet bus stops, Christopher travelled through 14 countries over period of 12 years taking pictures as he went, the trip was not without incident as at one time he was accused of being a spy, some of these were at the time leading the field of bus stop technology, we did post a few active bus stops a few days ago, I had no idea that bus stops could become an apparently world wide art form, the photos were originally published in a limited-edition, sold-out version of his book, but it is now available in an expanded, smaller-format trade edition, and no I am not on commission!
