I think my father put up similar ceiling tiles in 1955 in our new house when he finished the Basement. As I recall they have a tongue and grove design and were stapled up to either furring or the actual ceiling joists it you were lucky and they were spaced correctly.
The staples are hidden along only one edge much like todays pre-finished solid hardwood floors.
The sagging in your photo is a result of age and humidity. Time for a new ceiling.
