Tissue identification in vascular bundle sections?

I always have trouble differentiating the tissues in a vascular bundle. I specially cannot properly identify the vascular cambium and phloem. I know xylem vessel elements are large cells with thicker cell walls, that makes them clearly different from other cells in the vascular bundle. However, the difference between vascular cambium cells and phloem cells is unclear. I would like to know how I can identify these tissues accurately. A photomicrograph with marked borders would be appreciated along with explanation of cell appearance in these tissues. Thank you a lot.
