I experienced potential difference for the ground in old buildings
between two main sockets, less than 3 meters difference between those
sockets, both fed by the same power, coming from the same fuse and
connected to the same concrete-footing ground electrode.

Even if the power should come from two different sources, one building
should have one concrete-footing ground electrode for ground, so in
theory there shouldn't be a potential difference.

Buildings sometimes don't care about school books.
