100 year old wood floor help!!

i was hoping someone out there has some experience with working on old wooden floors from the late 1800s. We pulled up the carpet and got all of the slathered on trim paint and drippings off. We arent sure where to go from here. Poly is out of the question. The floors are uneven and have gaps and we are ok with that —- embaracing the character. They just need something to spruce them up. What options do we have if we aren’t starting with freshly sanded floors? i am attaching a photo after cleaning them up today. The look great when still damp but not as uniform after drying. Any help is appreciated!
