Slater later moved his operations from Leichhardt to the Haymarket district in Sydney's CBD.
No date has yet been determined for the end of Joe Slater Publishing. The National Library of Australia (NLA) holds a songster titled George Wallace's Song and Music Annual, which is attributed to Joe Slater Publishing [194-?]. However, all signs of newspaper advertising by the company cease after 1935, the same year that its last known publication was made available (The Irish Album, released to coincide with St Patrick's Day). The NLA provides no evidence for proposing a ca. 1940s year of publication for the Wallace song book.
