***** NOT A TEACHER *****
In my opinion, this sentence is one that definitely calls for a comma after the word "vanished":
"All signs of the market have vanished, and in front of the town hall, _____."
Now let's drop the first part of this compound sentence:
"In front of the town hall, there stood only a platform" or (in regular order): "There stood only a platform in front of the town hall."
