I would like to guide a tour in Jerusalem sometime next week. For the historical and political perspective, I would be happy to show the City Line on a modern Google Map during the tour. I can either use a existing vector data or georeference a high-quality raster city map.

I searched online, and only found rough sketches like the one below, taken from Wikipedia.

Any idea where I can find an accurate map of the Jerusalem pre-1967 border?

    Have you contact any local university GIS department that they might have that hardcopy from them ? They may have it at their GIS lab.

I think the CShapes project has the data you want. It attempts to have all country boundaries from 1946–2008. Since this city line is also a country border, it should work for you.
