Caption: Light microscopy of small calibre venous blood vessels. Small veins have very thin walls with elastic fibres (indigo coloured) that serve to maintain vessel diameter whist allowing expansion or constriction. A thin but discontinuous layer of smooth muscle cells may form a tunica media for the vessel wall. Magnification x180 when printed at 10 cm wide.
