My house was built in the late 1950's, so it could be either.

I'm leaning towards red because of the open cells along the end grain. But with aged wood flooring it is sometimes difficult to tell.
I agree, the open pores and lighter color. White oak has a sorta light brown color and really close very small pores, is heaver more brittle and harder.
