Meanwhile before the suburb of Prague, on the eastern bank of the Vistula, from Sep 23, 1939 on were emplaced with the I. AK the following Schwere Art Abteilungen (groups):

II./ 37; II./ 48 (with the 61.ID); II./ 57 (With the 11. ID); II./ 68. All of them organized as mixed groups (one battery of sK 10.0 cm and two batteries of sFH18 15.0 cm).

Another heavy group located in front of the suburb of Prague, on the eastern bank of the Vistula, was the schw Art. Abt. 604:

On September 20, 1939, the heavy group was shifted and took new positions in the suburb of Praga, east of Warsaw. Here were beaten the Polish positions on the outskirts of Prague. On September 25, 1939, the group was deployed again before Modlin and supported the attack against Modlin from the north of Torun.

http://www.lexikon-der-wehrmacht.de/Gli ... /AA604.htm

In the photo I found reads " Halbkette mit der Geschütz schwerem Ari - Ari - Abteilung 680 im Einsatz vor Warschau, Polenfeldzug " (half-track with a heavy howitzer of Art Abt. 680 in action in front of Warsaw, Poland Campaign)

Now the Art. Abt. 680 was redesignated as such only on February 21, 1940, consisting of the following batteries Bttr. 698, 1./Art.Abt . 604 and 1./ArtAbt . 607 so the photo may well be a part of the 1. / schw Art Abt. 604 or 1. / schw Art Abt. 607 (both groups equipped with a battery of howitzers sFH 18 15.0 cm and two batteries of Mörser 21 cm).
