RE: file was removed - history has gone with it???

Update the directory that used to contain that file to HEAD and run svn
log -v to find the revision that included the deletion of that file.

If you update to the prior revision svn log is only going to look back
from there, and it wouldn't hit the revision that deleted the file.

If you update to HEAD and try to query the file, SVN is correct in
reporting the file is not under version control AT THAT URL, AT THAT
REVISION.

Cheers
Rob
