Deleting a project from the repository

I wanted to delete an obsolete project from the repository, so after a bit of
research I used the 'delete' command:

svn delete -m "Remove obsolete project" svn+ssh://blahblah/ObsoleteProject

Via the Repository Browser I could see that this had deleted the project and the
source code as I'd intended.

Using the 'svnadmin dump' command, I could see that there were still references
to the deleted project, which is pretty much what I expected.

Next, I used the Revision Graph to see if I could still view the deleted
project. As the project was still shown (along with its revisions), I wondered
if I could check out a 'pre-deleted' version of the project by specifying an
older revision:

svn checkout --revision <old_version> svn+ssh://blahblah/ObsoleteProject

This didn't work, however, and gave an error that it couldn't find the latest
revision of 'ObsoleteProject'.

Since the project still exists in the repository, is there actually a way to
pull out a 'pre-deleted' version?
