Crown Moulding

Am removing my crown moulding and came across these blocks behind it that looks like they were used to attach the crown. Was/Is that the right way to install crown moulding? Thanks.

Crown Moulding

Those are nailing blocks and are frequently used on the walls that have ceiling joists that run parallel to the wall----they allow positive nailing that is not possible when only drywall without joist ends is available---
