Carnes 00 Map.jpgCarnes Lane runs southeast, about 0.11 mile, from Race Road to the rear property line of 26 Bradford Street. There is also a Carnes Avenue, perpendicular to the longer lane, but there are currently no official Carnes Avenue addresses. Considerable confusion exists among sources, since what is now Carnes Lane was for many years known as Carnes Avenue. An old reference — say — to “7 Carnes Avenue” can almost certainly be understood as the equivalent of modern “7 Carnes Lane.” Further confusion exists since the Sanborn’s street atlas in the early 20th century referred to Carnes Avenue as Cass Avenue.
