There was no cheap 4 x 8 sheets of compressed sawdust and/or particle board subflooring like they use today in construction. Back in the day when a new house costs as much as new truck does today, they used plain old 1 x 6 boards with tongue and groove finish top slats on like Dan shows. The boards were fastened angular and if the house has a basement, go down there and look up to the ceiling if it isn't finished and see the sub floor slats. I lived in old farm house for 5 years that was built in 1876. had a Michigan basement, oil burning furnace, and original wiring -not to modern code.
