No subfloor

While under my house the other day, I noticed that in both bedrooms, the hardwood floor rests directly on the floor joists. Is this typical in older homes?

Yes, it's fairly typical in circa 1960 homes (and older) that had wood floors. The tongue & groove oak (or pine) floor was solid enough that it did not need a subfloor. The oak is probably 7/8" thick.
