asbestos around chimney

I am scraping loose paint and plaster from a house built in the twenties or thirties. Around the chimney (inside the house), there is a white, powderish substance which doesn't look like plaster to me. Was it common to use asbestos surrounding the brickwork of a chimney (under the plaster) at that time?
