Soviet bus-stops

As the author of this photo series says "The roadside bus stop serves a simple purpose – to show where the bus will stop and to provide some comfort and shelter for waiting passengers. One would think that the Soviets would have come up with one universal design for this community structure – simple, functional and cheap to mass produce." But no: he shows a series of fantastical, figurative and folly-like designs from all over the former Soviet Union, some of which look like first-year architecture projects, and some of which like small temples.
