Old timber joists and old flooring

Recommended Posts

The joist photos are just for interest. They are common around here, but I'm sure not everywhere. Date stone on house says 1854.

The flooring is my question. I see a lot of old flooring-some square edge and some ship lap. Maybe I have not paid attention, but I can't recall seeing tongue and groove of like this. I'm thinking that it was hand planed. If it is original it would predate commercial T&G flooring.
