Screen shot from Google Maps not good enough?
You can de-saturate it in Photoshop or Gimp
or whatever.


It is good enough in terms of quality but not the
enjoyment of work. I know it is possible to do the way
I do it, so I'm gonna keep looking...


You can get vector representations of just about any place on earth from
Open Street Map.

http://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=5/51.500/-0.100

You'll have to do some work to figure out how to get what you need, but
it's probably the best open-source map data that's available.
