Is this asbestos siding?

The back side of the siding is exposed in the garage of a cottage we are interested in buying. The cottage was built in the 70ís. Does it look like asbestos?

This is the exposed backside of the siding which covers the garage and cottage.

Looks like Masonite, (or some other brand of hardboard siding) not asbestos.

Asbestos siding is typically 'square' hard shingles nailed up in a shingle like pattern.
Looks like masonite or similar to me too. it was real popular in the 70's and 80's.
