It looks like blown-in attic insulation. How old? You can guess at the likelihood it contains asbestos, or have it tested.

Only way to be sure is have it tested. Does not look like asbestos I have seen but a house that old who knows.

Sorry, I can't tell looking at it either...but you are dead right to be questioning it. (I think asbestos was outlawed in late 70's, but I don't know when it started to be used.)
