Well I based my White House map on the real thing, so I just took a picture.
Sadly My White House is scaled for security reason so it doesnt fit the image 100%.

Reference image is poor, but it is hard to find an image without the Louvre...
Plus a daylight scene which does not match the original but shows more details.
