In Subversion there is no going back per se.
You might, as you say update to rev 19 to retrieve the deleted folders
but you would need to then checkout a new WC at rev 21 to another
location, copy the wanted folder into the new WC, do and SVN Add and
commit giving you rev 22.

There may also be a way by doing a snvserve command line dump, filter
and reload of the repository on the server to rev 19 and loosing
everything from there up. That's not in the realm of advice to seek from
this group however, try users@subversion.tigris.org.
