It's Masonite, or some similar brand of pressed fiber siding. No, that type of siding did not contain asbestos.

I agree, it looks like masonite. Masonite became popular after asbestos was banned from residential use. It's prone to deteriorate when it gets wet so it's prudent to keep it well painted.
