teak sole, the real stuff

Teak and holly cabin soles now days all seem to be plywood sheets glued down and varnished. I know that they are an imitation of something past that I will probably never see, but I am curious by nature and was wondering if anybody knows how the old solid teak/holly flooring was assembled and fastened down. Was it some sort of tongue and groove, was the holly used as a wedge driven down and scraped off? Surely some of you wooden boat caregivers would know.

Real Teak and Holly Cabin Sole

See if you can access the below URL..I have also read that most folks don't use Holly wood anymore due to cost and availbility..I was told that some maple woods were of the same color and hardness.
